Unicornhat install stops with: python-pip already installed


#1

After following the initial instructions at link to learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/raspberry-pi/keeping-your-raspberry-pi-updated I attempt the instructions at link to learn.pimoroni.com/tutorial/unicorn-hat/getting-started-with-unicorn-hat but install stops with the following and does not create the Pimoroni/unicornhat folder. How do I fix this? Thanks.

Checking for python-pip…
python-pip already installed.

PS would love to get involved with your crowdcube campaign but they recently switched from gocardless to stripe which will be a barrier for regular investors. If the campaign is slow you might like to ask them to switch back to gocardless.

PPS had to replace http with “link to” otherwise could not save.

Enjoy your day.

Hi - yes that scripts currently fails to do its job on Wheezy :(

Try:

sudo apt-get --force-yes --yes install python-dev python3-dev python-pip python3-pip

then re-run

curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/unicornhat | bash

that should work.

Oh! What’s the problem with Stripe vs Gocardless?


#4

Stripe pulls money from your account (ie you authorise them to take whatever they want, when they want, for whatever reason they want), Gocardless is an agreement for a specific amount for a specific purpose only.

Excellent! Thank you @RogueM all working now.
